Might be related to whatever killed the forums over the weekend. Maybe they are just cleaning up / fixing / doing maintenance on the entire domain.
More on topic: I FINALLY divetted out a small spot in the middle of the magnetic plate that came with the Delta+ (it’s maybe…MAYBE…a mm diameter divet) that came up when I was removing a multi part print that I had piecemealed together to fill up the bed diameter so I wasn’t printing a bunch of small parts separately.
It was also print 42 on my spreadsheet and about the 10th or so print using Push Plastic Filament instead of Flux Filament (the 3d Cafe here sells Push and the advantage of walking in and buying it off a shelf outweighed…everything else at that point because I had a project I wanted to print sooner than shipping time would have been convenient for). So I feel like I got pretty decent mileage on the thing. It’s still definitely useable at this point, we’ll see how long it continues.
My partner and I have been discussing ordering a few things from the store in the near future. I want to do some messing around with the toolhead but for the sake of partner’s sanity we decided it may be wise to order an “extra” for me to frankenstein…he let’s me have exactly “this much” fun before he reels me back into reality - and if I’m going to deal with DHL shipping to Canada I may as well order enough to make it worth the hassle so I may order a couple more plates as backups…or use Jim’s Buildtak method…or both…and still looking at getting a glass plate both “just in case” and to see which I like better (and I can get it from the same place in Canada as the Buildtak…yay no DHL).
I like options…
